Currently(till 1905) we do not have an option to provide permission for recurring absence feature.All employees can create recurring absences.However a new permission setting will be introduced in 1908

How it impacts existing customer's

  • Recurring absence feature will be hidden by default post 1908 release(in Fiori Time off ESS UI)
  • Existing customers for the new Time off ESS UI who are using recurring absence feature will have to  manually enable it via the permission setting. There is no automatic migration provided for this.
  • This feature is not impacted by admin scenario” . If the absence UI is a launched using admin workbench or on behalf scenario, the recurring absence feature is not hidden by any permission setting
